already dropping into the 60s 234 oakland and also san mateo. even 69 in san jose. let's get a check of the live hd sky network. and you'll find in san jose we have lots of blue sky. a bit of haze. not much in the way of cloud cover. up into san francisco, well, not too much fog here either. but that wind is blowing our flag there on the right side of your screen directly out of the west. so definitely some patchy fog returning for tonight. here is what we're looking at. the next 48 hours, we have this stubborn area of upper low pressure sitting in the pacific. it's not only going to stay here the next 48, but we think maybe for the next five days, that's right, even into parts of the upcoming weekend that will keep this slightly cooler than average flow. also the onshore flow winds. and that will bring us some areas of patchy fog for the coastline. mainly 50s and 60s here as we head throughout our tuesday forecast. we'll be on the mild side. and then for the interior valleys, 70s by the bay and 80s for the extreme interior sections of the east and also for the south bay. but even while we have this
5:18pm
cooler weather, and we'll also have areas of fog, we'll still get plenty of sunshine in here by the afternoon. we'll start off 6:00 a.m. on tuesday, with some low clouds up into the north bay. extensive wide low cloud cover for the entire coastline. but then as we head throughout 1:00 p.m. tomorrow, everyone is expecting some sunshine, even right up against the coast. so that's the good thing about tuesday's forecast. even though it will be slightly cooler and we'll have the fog, we'll get plenty of sunshine in here. it will stay comfortable in the south bay with 76 in san jose. 79 in evergreen. 1 in morgan hill. double 6s in santa cruz. 76 in los gatos. and for the east bay, it's not going to be hot. typically we'll see this area run quite a bit warmer than the south bay. but you can see 81 in walnut creek. also back in livermore and 74 in fremont. for san francisco you'll top out at 67. 73 in san rafael. 76 in santa rosa. 2 in oakland. on your three-day forecast, numbers in the low 80s inland tuesday, wednesday, and thursday.
5:19pm
70s by the bay. 60s at the coastline built. this upcoming weekend, here are the changes. right on cue as we flip over to fall, which officially starts on saturday. we're going to look at a chance of showers off to the north. nothing for the bay area. but we could see this change as we head into this upcoming sunday. so there is only a slight, slight chance that maybe we'll get a stray shower in the north bay. we're not going there yet. but it is going to be something to watch for this upcoming weekend. so diane, while you didn't like today, i don't know that you're going to approve of this seven-day forecast. >> oh, it still looks pretty nice. i can't really complain with 80s. all right. thanks, jeff. >> you're welcome. well, a court in france is considering whether to block further publication of topless photos of the duchess of cambridge, kate middleton. an italian magazine is now using the images as well. nbc's francis cohas the story. >> reporter: the royals' legal
5:20pm
